Worthington, Ohio---With the Budweiser Dairyland Super Nationals now in the books, the NTPA will focus the pulling world's attention on a pair of two-night regional events in eastern Indiana and western Kentucky.
In Arcola, Indiana, Branning Park will come alive with the sights and sounds of the Arcola National Pull. Appearing both Friday, June 29 and Saturday, June 30 beginning at 7 p.m. are Region II Heavy Super Stock and Light Pro Stock (West) Tractors and Mini and Multi-Engine Modifieds. Session One will also include Four Wheel Drive Trucks, while Session Two augments the show with Two Wheel Drives and StainlessDiesel.com Pro Stock Diesel 4x4 3.0s.
And the NTPA returns to the Western Kentucky State Fairgrounds in Hopkinsville, Kentucky those same two nights for seven classes. Representing the lone Region VI appearances for Light and Heavy Super Stocks, Super Farms, Pro Stocks, and Two Wheel Drives, Hopkinsville's two hooks will determine five Enderle berths by Saturday night. Joining the regional action are Mid-South Pullers Association classes of Limited Light Supers, Four Wheel Drives, and Pro Stock Four Wheel Drives.
Looking ahead to the flip of the calendar, the scent of spent fireworks will still be in the air when NTPA's Week Eight witnesses five events (Rockwell, Marion, South Bend, Eaton, and Greentown) across three states. Plan on stretching your July 4 holiday into a long festive weekend by taking in some NTPA action either in person or live-streamed from the North Iowa Nationals, July 5-7. We'll see you back here next week to take a closer look.
